If you were going to enter a Push Up/Pull Up/Squat/whatever contest, trying to get specifically strong in a certain area, here are some good tips.
Write down how many Push Ups you do to begin with. Continually write down how many you do whenever you pratice them. Next would be to figure out proper form and do the Push Ups with very good, extremely good form - perform them slowly to ensure you are doing them right. Next go for amount, for you want to see how many you could do in one sitting. The more you practice, the better you will get at them and the better chance you will have at improving. Continue practicing, asking maybe a Personal Trainer for some tips on how to improve your form. It's true that practice makes perfect.
